Durant leads Warriors past Mavericks for eighth straight win

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) After his brilliant game, Omri Casspi returned to the court to sing a Hanukkah prayer along with hundreds of fans and then took his turn lighting the large menorah on night three of the festival of lights - and on Jewish Heritage Night at Oracle Arena.

A veteran forward from Israel, Casspi earned another start for the injury-plagued defending champions and posted his 17th career double-double with season bests of 17 points and 11 rebounds, helping send the Golden State Warriors past the Dallas Mavericks 112-97 on Thursday for their eighth straight win.

"My family's in town always for Hanukkah, so it's always fun to have family around," he said, adding of his role, "Same mindset, just play hard. I want to stay sharp, stay ready whenever I'm called upon."
